8). Psychoanalysis, as Mitchell sees it, must steer a course between an impossible objectivism and relational relativism. That there is no single description of a patient’s psyche does not mean that multiple descriptions are all equally valid or important or that they remain so over time. We (the patient and the analyst) prioritize the different facts of a patient’s life, and our belief in one over another varies. Mitchell sees insufficient distinctions being made between the facts of a patient’s life and the complex interpersonal interpretations of those facts that we offer him or her.
Its essential inequality, resulting from the analyst’s expertise, the analyst’s knowledge, and the patient’s being a patient are both acknowledged and explored as a reality (not interpreted as transference), equal in importance to their evocative potential for a developing transference. The analyst’s actual authority should always be over the situation, not the patient. Power consequences of the analyst’s and the patient’s activities must always be considered (too often, the former are ignored and the latter genetically interpreted).
Kelly’s theory was based on the premise that “a person’s processes are psychologically channelized by the ways in which he anticipates events” (p. 46) and that he “anticipates events by construing their replications” (p. 50). This was, in effect, a social constructivist model in which, as a result of life experience, an individual develops a series of metanarratives that tells him or her how to behave and what to expect in future situations. These constructs, if developed in response to destructive early life experience, would severely curtail freedom and capacity to act in the present.
